With last week’s rare and powerful storm, the City is still recovering from a catastrophic amount of rain. The city experienced widespread flooding and infrastructure impacts.
Preparing the city in advance for these major weather events is a top priority. This week, storm preparations are being set in place for significant rain. The City has secured back-up stormwater and sewer pumps that are ready to be deployed to areas where flooding occurs. Last week, the City authorized a City contractor to temporarily build a fully functional storm water pump system as an alternative to the Parker Pump Station. This back-up system is ready to be powered up when the rains begin. Pallets of sandbags have continuously been set out for residents, and since last Friday, over 6,500 were picked up. The sandbags are being taken quickly and the City is doing its best to secure more. Up-to-date sandbag information is being posted on our website and social media.
City crews are sweeping the streets and clearing debris that may impede storm runoff from flowing into the collection systems. The parks have been checked for potential problems that could arise during heavy rains and sand berms have been built on the beaches to reduce erosion. During the rainstorms, Coronado's first responders will focus on protecting lives and property. Additionally, City crews will remove debris and tree limbs from the roadways and close street that are unsafe.
